Oldham Athletic 1-2 Bradford City

Bradford ended 10-man Oldham's unbeaten start to the League One campaign as they sealed all three points at Boundary Park.

The Bantams broke the deadlock when Mark Marshall fed Reece Burke, with the West Ham loanee slotting the ball home.

Oldham had Jonathan Forte sent off when he tangled with Stephen Darby, before Devante Cole doubled Bradford's lead.

The Latics pulled one back when Joe Mills nodded home Mark Yeates' cross, but the visitors held on.

Oldham manager Darren Kelly told BBC Radio Manchester:

Kelly on Oldham v Bradford

"You have to move on. I'm not going to sit and dwell over it, life stops for no one and you have to just do what you do.

"I'll never use an excuse. I'll always stand at the front and take full responsibility for the result. I'm the person that picks the team, I put a team out there, I'll never shy away from responsibility.

"No matter which way you look at it, it's three points I feel we've lost because we've got to win our home games. Getting beat is not nice."
